Tuesday Tip - Cardstock


We all have a ton (yes I said a ton) of cardstock kicking around, you want to use it but you just can't get past all that beautiful printed paper you have (hoarding) OR you are trying to save some money as you have finally used up (or purged) all the paper you had been hoarding.

- Perhaps buying or using the smaller pads (6x6, 8x8, etc) will work for you.  Pull out your cardstock and use as the base and layer your printed papers on top for a change.

- Want to incorporate some art techniques?  Paint, Ink, Spray, splatter what you want on your bases (try a technique you've found on the net) and top with a printed paper of your choice and go from there.

- Make your own Project Life/Pocket Scrapbooking filler cards (psst, there are no laws saying you have to round the corners)!

- Pull out your die cutting machines (Cricut, Silhouette, Big Shot, Cuttlebug, etc) and start using your dies and programs to get a head start on titles and accents for you layouts and or projects.  Or better yet, do up a bunch and donate them to the local Play/Pre School, Kindergarten, Day Care....

I know there are tons more ideas, but this is a good start for you!  Go ahead and make yours and someone else's day!
